The traditional music of Brittany and Wales is preserved through the performances and lecture/workshops of multi-lingual vocalist and choral director Brigitte Kloareg. Although she initially focused on western classical music and ethnomusicology, Kloareg has made her greatest impact as a collector and interpreter of centuries-old music. Together with Essex, England-born vocalist Julie Murphy and bagpipers Jonathan Shorland and Ceri Matthews, she formed a Welsh-speaking band, Saith Rhyfeddod, in the early-'90s. Kloareg collaborated in 1999 with Luzili Mulindi King of Kenya for a series of workshops that emphasized the cross-cultural relationship between African music and music of the British Empire. Kloareg has increasingly performed with her daughter, Katell.
